Tag...You're It

I've been blogging for a year and a half...or so. I haven't kept track of how many times I have been "tagged" by other bloggers. Lately, though, it has been a LOT!! The EtsyBloggers street team has been having a lot of fun playing tag. To play, you post six secrets, or things people don't know about you, then you are supposed to tag more people and so on.
Ok....I'm finally going to play. I don't like tagging other people, though, so feel free to play along if you wish!

Let's see.
#1 - I'm a foodie. I learned to cook at a very young age and picked up all the best baking secrets from my Grandmother, Beatrice. Basic comfort food and recipes were from my Mom, Judy. Barbecue secrets and all things meat were thanks to my Dad, Fran. (Both Fran and Judy are former BBQ champions and have their own brand of sauces and seasonings.)

#2 - I worked as a Roving Reporter, summers during college. I would ask current-events questions, record the answers from people on the street, take their picture (and develop my own black and white film). Not my favorite job, but I suppose it helped break my "shell." I was caught once saying "nucular" and learned my lesson then!

#3 - I used to play the trombone. As much as I love loud, alternative, modern rock (Rob Zombie, The White Stripes, Saliva), you'll find me blasting a big band station and listening to Jack Teagarden, Count Basie, or Dixieland Jazz. Yeah, I enjoy a wide range of music, Beatles to Bing Crosby. I love Bluegrass, but not so much modern country.

#4 - I LOVE SNOW!!!! There's nothing more peaceful than a pretty snowfall. I love to ski cross-country and ski out the back door when there's enough snow. I don't do down-hill.

#5 - Give me a good cup of coffee and I'll love you forever. I like beer too.

#6 - I sometimes catch myself watching Sportscenter with Mike and Mike in the Morning. I know, I know. He leaves for work and leaves it on and "ooh Steeler highlights!" Oh yeah, I should turn it off. I'm not a sports geek, but I like Mike....and Mike.

You have good taste in music, beverages, and television. That must be like the trifecta or something.
